Oxford, UK; 10 December 2019: Sensyne Health plc (LSE: SENS), the British clinical AI technology company, announces that Annalisa Jenkins and Andrew Gilbert stepped down from the Board of Sensyne yesterday. The Board has appointed Sir Bruce Keogh, Independent Non-Executive Director, as Interim Non-Executive Chair of the Board, effective immediately, whilst the search continues for an independent non-executive chair and additional independent non-executive directors.  Spencer Stuart have been appointed to undertake the search on behalf of the Company.


Sir Bruce Keogh is the Chair of Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust. He previously served as NHS Medical Director and Director General in the Department of Health from November 2007 to March 2013. Following the 2012 health service reforms he was appointed National Medical Director of NHS England from April 2013 to January 2018. During a decade as the most senior doctor in the NHS he had responsibility for national clinical policy and strategy.


Prior to joining the Department of Health, he had a distinguished international career as a cardiac surgeon, having first been a consultant at the Hammersmith Hospital in London, then University Hospital Birmingham before becoming Professor of Cardiac Surgery at UCL and Director of Surgery at the Heart Hospital.


As a result of these changes, Mary Hardy has been appointed as Senior Independent Director and Chair of the Nomination Committee.
